The bird aviary is one of the projects that you have to consider, if you are thinking of having pet birds. For many people, the aviaries that they can find on the market can be rather expensive and that is why the best option is to consider a DIY project. You have two options in this case, which can very much depend on the things that you have around your house or on what you can get from friends and family, in terms of things you or they do not use anymore. You can consider the transformation of a piece of furniture into an aviary or you can make it from scratch.

The easy version is the one involving the transformation of the furniture. You can opt for an old armoire, just like the one in the picture. You can remove all the shelves and can replace the glass doors with a more plastic material, so that the birds will not hurt themselves. You also have to consider ventilation spaces, food and water supplies refill paths, doors and so on. Having thought of these technicalities, you can move on to placing all the covers. Inside, you can use a variety of ropes, branches and various other materials, which may vary according to the types of birds you will have and to the elements that they usually like. Opting to make the aviary from scratch, on the other hand, can be a great solution for those who have craft skills. The developments for finalization are the same in both case. Only here, you will have to take measurements and to construct the entire aviary on your own.

Regardless of what your option will be, the DIY bird aviary is a wonderful project. You get something to do with your family and with your friends, but you will also create the place in which you will be able to admire all your future bird pets. Each of the variants involves a lot of work. You have to consider the fact that the bird aviary will be the home of some wonderful creatures and should, therefore, be designed in a proper way. You can consider some of the models that you can find online for inspiration, but the finality of them all is to be suitable for the types of birds and for their lifestyle.
